National antithesis?

So, that took a while to get back to blogging after the beach.
Something about an insanely busy week back, after vacation...

Here's a great paragraph by Doug Wilson, confessing our sins as American Christians:

"Father, we confess that the Church has not thought of herself the way the Scriptures describe us. We confess that we get too easily caught up in the currents of culture and politics, with out [our, sic] identity shaped by forces that are not in accordance with the work of Your Holy Spirit. Help us to see ourselves as Christians in the first instance, and as Christians who understand obedience in the particular stations assigned to us in this nation."

In other words, we let politics or national identity shape us more than the Spirit. We ought not "locate the antithesis between righteousness and unrighteousness in terms of nations."
